On 14 March 2013, on the occasion of the forth- coming »Nuits des Bains» in Geneva, Blondeau & Cie is pleased to present in its space at 5 rue de la Muse Works on paper, an exhibition bringing together eleven international artists.

Today drawing is no longer a secondary genre, an exercise in style for the debutant, but a gesture in its own right: an emancipation from academicism, a deliverance from tradition. Works on paper reveals this common desire to find inspiration in the bare fact of line and white page, elements in whose sim- plicity lies the ultimate artistic challenge.

By a simple movement of the hand, an impul- sion of the finger, drawing directly translates the thought and emotion of the artist with very little allowance for second thoughts. From pencil to oil, from felt tip to Indian ink, not to mention mascara, techniques abound, affording almost total freedom of both support and theme.
